Memorial Day Weekend 2014 // Themes

This weekend was so good for my soul.

My Memorial Day Weekend can be summed up in four themes.

1. Drinks

Cocktails at Happy Hour. Beer on the porch. Craft beer. Iced Coffee. Iced Tea. More Coffee.

4. Outdoors

Flower shopping at the Produce Station. Garden supply shopping. Planting flowers all afternoon Saturday.

Visit to Calder Dairy Farm with the huz for our “Sunday Funday” Date. I heart this guy so much.

Running 5K to balance out all those treats.

Kayaking 5.7 miles down the Huron River with my BFF! It was awesome seeing this gal!

I’m not sure if I’ve ever been so grateful for such a gorgeously warm and sunny Michigan weekend in my life, after that brutal winter. – it was absolutely wonderful.

Here’s to more sunny fun weekends this summer!

Did you get outside and enjoy the weather this weekend?

  1. Sounds like a lovely holiday weekend! I explored Grand Rapids this weekend, checked out a couple bars and restaurants in Eastown and downtown, and met some locals at a barbecue. It was a beautiful weekend weather-wise in the mitten — perfect for alfresco dining!
